Limmer’s Hotel Punch

In the early 1800s, at the Limmer’s Hotel in London, England, an enterprising headwaiter created a Gin Punch so famous his guests named it after him: the John Collins.  By the 1870s, the widespread use of Old Tom gin changed the Punch’s name to “Tom Collins,” and a classic cocktail was born.  We stick with Old Tom gin in our recipe, and lengthen it with sparkling wine.  The orange blossom water lends a subtle, perfumed afterglow to a must-try masterpiece.
